Speak to Andy and it will give you directions, answers regarding regarding several topics and information about the weather
Andy is an Android assistant for your mobile that answers your questions regarding general knowledge, directions and weather. Additionally, Andy can send text messages and make phone calls.
Given its simple and clean design, you just need to tap on the mic, ask your question and wait for the answer to load. Andy worked extremely slow in our device and sometimes didn't even give us an answer. Other times, it just says: "I have no answer", which should definitely appear less often. If you feel it doesn't understand you well, you can type your questions instead of speaking.
A good feature that we particularly enjoyed is the People Asking option, which shows what other people are asking, which can be fun and provide inspiration for further questions. Andy was developed by 74 Technologies, being this one their only application in the market. We hope they can work on it, as it'd improve very much.
ANDY is an intelligent personal assistant, knowledge navigator and voice control software designed for Android devices (phones/tablets) with the fast growing user base (hundreds of thousands users & almost 50 thousand paying customers).
Andy can send text messages, initiate phone calls, give you directions and literally answer pretty much any question you throw at him. It covers most of Wikipedia information, but you can also ask about weather and time, get answers to algebra questions, do unit conversions. It's smart enough to answer questions even if English is not your first language, it's design to extract the most relevant information.
To ask a question or to give a command, tap the microphone button on the application home screen. Alternatively, you may give your device a little shake (this requires enabling the Shake Recording option) or simply just type your question manually to get the answer. Andy will recognize your voice and speech, search for the best possible answer and read it back to you in a clear voice. The answer will also be displayed on your device screen with additional details, including videos, urls and more description you can read if you feel like it.
Additionally, Andy also works with most A2DP Bluetooth headsets.

I like this
I asked it to tell me a joke and I got the information on what a joke is and all the requirements for a joke to be successful? I next asked for a picture of a cartoon character and got a 5minute spiel about how they were developed, blah, blah. I can just see it in a driving situation - "give me directions to the hospital" Answer " directions were first used in the neolithic period as a means of
It does not answer my question directly. It tells me a location in another freaking state instead of right here!

I wanted something that could be useful but also something I could talk too. Its just a talking encyclopedia, I can't chat with it. Get "Assistant" instead.
